(Sv. titel: Övertalning.) I sin sista roman skildrar Jane Austen (1775-1817) den unga Anne Elliott, hennes kamp att nå självaktning och egenvärde både som individ och som representant för sitt kön. Miljöerna är lantegendomar i södra England, hamnstaden Lyme och den celebra badorten Bath
Jane Austens sista roman i ny översättning. Anne Elliott och kapten Frederick Wentworth möttes och förälskade sig i varandra när de var mycket unga, men skildes åt av släktingar. Många år senare möts de igen. Nu måste de ifrågasätta och övervinna de förutfattade meningar som en gång drev dem isär.
Persuasion is Jane Austen's last completed novel. She began it soon after she had finished Emma and completed it in August 1816. She died, aged 41, in 1817; Persuasion was published in December of that year (but dated 1818).Persuasion is widely appreciated as a moving love story despite what has been called its simple plot, and it exemplifies Austen's signature wit and ironic narrative style. While writing Persuasion, however, Austen became ill with the disease that would kill her less than two years later. As a result, the novel is both shorter and arguably less polished than Mansfield Park and Emma since it was not subject to the author's usual careful retrospective revision. The novel is described in the introduction to the Penguin Classics edition as a great Cinderella story. It features a heroine who is generally unappreciated and to some degree exploited by those around her; a handsome prince who appears on the scene but seems more interested in the "more obvious" charms of others; a moment of realisation; and the final happy ending. It has been said that it is not that Anne is unloved, but rather that those around her no longer see her clearly: she is such a fixed part of their lives that her likes and dislikes, wishes and dreams are no longer considered, even by those who claim to value her, like Lady Russell.Persuasion is linked to Northanger Abbey not only by the fact that the two books were originally bound up in one volume and published together, but also because both stories are set partly in Bath, a fashionable city with which Austen was well acquainted, having lived there from 1801 to 1805.Persuasion has been the subject of several TV and film adaptations.Jane Austen (1775-1817) was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature.

critics.From 1811 until 1816, with the release of Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816), she achieved success as a published writer. She wrote two additional novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818, and began a third, which was eventually titled Sanditon, but died before completing it.In 1994, American literary critic Harold Bloom placed Austen among the greatest Western Writers of all time. In a 2002 poll to determine whom the UK public considers the greatest British people in history, Austen was ranked number 70 in the list of the "100 Greatest Britons". In 2003, Austen's Pride and Prejudice came second in the BBC's The Big Read, a national poll to find the "Nation's best-loved book." [Elib]
Persuasion is Jane Austen's last completed novel. She began it soon after she had finished Emma and completed it in August 1816. More than eight years before the novel opens, Anne Elliot, then a lovely, thoughtful, warm-hearted 19-year old, accepted a proposal of marriage from the handsome young naval officer Frederick Wentworth. He was clever, confident, and ambitious, but poor and with no particular family connections to recommend him. Sir Walter, Anne's fatuous, snobbish father and her equally self-involved older sister Elizabeth were dissatisfied with her choice, maintaining that he was no match for an Elliot of Kellynch Hall, the family estate. Her older friend and mentor, Lady Russell, acting in place of Anne's late mother, persuaded her to break the engagement, for she, too felt it was an imprudent match that was beneath Anne.Now 27 and still unmarried, Anne re-encounters her former love when his sister and brother-in-law, the Crofts, take out a lease on Kellynch. Wentworth is now a captain and wealthy from maritime victories in the Napoleonic wars. However, he has not forgiven Anne for rejecting him. While publicly declaring that he is ready to marry any suitable young woman who catches his fancy, he privately resolves that he is ready to become attached to any appealing young woman with the exception of Anne Elliot. Persuasion is widely appreciated as a moving love story despite what has been called its simple plot, and it exemplifies Austen's signature wit and ironic narrative style.

All the tension of the novel revolves around one question: Will Anne and Wentworth be reunited in their love? Persuasion is the last fully completed novel by Jane Austen It was published at the end of 1817, six months after her death and is by many considered to be her most mature and greatest novel. [Elib]

Mansfield Park is a novel by Jane Austen, published in May 1814 by Thomas Egerton, who published Jane Austen's two earlier novels, Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. When the novel reached a second edition in 1816, its publication was taken over by John Murray, who also published its successor, Emma.Mansfield Park is the most controversial of Austen's major novels. The story contains much social satire, targeted particularly at the two aunts. It is an even more socially-aware novel than Austen's others, focusing as it does on the slave trade and the roots of the British upper-crust's wealth in corruption and exploitation. It is probably the least romantic and most pragmatic of Austen's novels, as its abrupt and rather matter-of-fact ending shows.Mansfield Park has been the subject of a number of adaptations for TV, film and stage.Jane Austen (1775-1817) was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature.

Sjuttonåriga Chaterine Morland, med särskild förkärlek för gotiska skräckromaner, reser tillsammans med bekanta till kurorten Bath över sommaren. Där blir hon vän med miss Thorpe som lär henne att föra sig i sällskapslivet och med mr Tilney som bjuder med henne till familjens landställe Northanger Abbey
Northanger Abbey  was the first of Jane Austen's novels to be completed for publication, though she had previously made a start on Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. Northanger Abbey follows seventeen-year-old Gothic novel aficionado Catherine Morland and family friends Mr. and Mrs. Allen as they visit Bath. It is Catherine's first visit there. She meets new friends, such as Isabella Thorpe, and goes to balls. Catherine finds herself pursued by Isabella's brother, the rough-mannered, slovenly John Thorpe, and by her real love interest, Henry Tilney. She also becomes friends with Eleanor Tilney, Henry's younger sister. Henry captivates her with his view on novels and his knowledge of history and the world. General Tilney (Henry and Eleanor's father) invites Catherine to visit their estate, Northanger Abbey, which, from her reading of Ann Radcliffe's Gothic novel The Mysteries of Udolpho, she expects to be dark, ancient and full of Gothic horrors and fantastical mystery. Austen died in July 1817. Northanger Abbey (as the novel was now called) was brought out posthumously in late December 1817 (1818 given on the title page), as the first two volumes of a four-volume set that also featured another previously unpublished Austen novel, Persuasion. Northanger Abbey has been the subject of many adaptations for film, TV and the stage.

Jane Austens första stora roman Northanger Abbey, som inte utkom förrän efter hennes död, är en frän drift med tidens populära skräckromaner – liksom med den societet hon alltid älskade att häckla.Romanens hjältinna heter Catherine Morland och hon är nyligen introducerad i societeten. Under en vistelse i staden Bath får hon många nya bekanta. Bland annat den jämnåriga miss Thorpe med vilken hon delar sitt stora intresse för romaner, något man inte kan diskutera med vem som helst. De unga damerna pratar om allt väsentligt: kvällens bal, morgondagens promenad, en viss ung mans uppförande. Under en bal i inledningen av sin vistelse har Catherine nämligen blivit presenterad för en mr Tilney. När han bjuder upp henne blir hon mycket smickrad, då han är både stilig och spirituell – men dagen efter balen är han försvunnen. Efter flera dagars bortovaro återvänder han dock och Catherine börjar genast förhöra sig lite försiktigt hos hans syster och söker sig allt oftare till hennes sällskap. Detta ses inte med helt blida ögon av miss Thorpe, det blir rent av lite spänt vid flera tillfällen.När så Catherine blir medbjuden av familjen Tilney att tillbringa en tid på deras gods tackar hon andlöst ja. Väl framme vid Northanger Abbey tycker hon sig ställd inför den gotiska litteraturens alla otäcka scenarier och föreställer sig det värsta. Lyckligtvis bistås hon av ett sunt förnuft, och den oemotståndlige Henry Tilney.Northanger Abbey är en klassisk Jane Austen-roman, fylld av intriger och förvecklingar. Den fick vänta länge på publicering och kom ut flera år efter både Förnuft och känsla och Stolthet och fördom men hennes skildringar av sin tids mellanmänskliga förehavanden är minst lika briljanta här som i dem.Översättare:Rose-Marie Nielsen,Omslagsformgivare:Paulina Elm [Elib]

Jane Austens klassiska roman, från 1813, utspelas på den engelska landsbygden omkring år 1800. Mrs Bennets mål i livet är att få sina fem döttrar lyckligt bortgifta
Pride and Prejudice is a novel by Jane Austen, first published in 1813. The story follows the main character Elizabeth Bennet as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of early 19th-century England. Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman living near the fictional town of Meryton in Hertfordshire, near London.Though the story is set at the turn of the 19th century, it retains a fascination for modern readers, continuing near the top of lists of "most loved books" such as The Big Read. It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature and receives considerable attention from literary scholars. Modern interest in the book has resulted in a number of dramatic adaptations and an abundance of novels and stories imitating Austen's memorable characters or themes. To date, the book has sold some 20 million copies worldwide.As Anna Quindlen wrote, "Pride and Prejudice is also about that thing that all great novels consider, the search for self. And it is the first great novel to teach us that that search is as surely undertaken in the drawing room making small talk as in the pursuit of a great white whale or the public punishment of adultery."In 2003 the BBC conducted the largest ever poll for the "UK's Best-Loved Book" in which Pride and Prejudice came second, behind The Lord of the Rings.In a 2008 survey of more than 15,000 Australian readers, Pride and Prejudice came first in a list of the 101 best books ever written.Pride and Prejudice has engendered numerous adaptations for film, TV, stage, comics and radio.Jane Austen (1775-1817) was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature.

Sense and Sensibility is a novel by Jane Austen, and was her first published work when it appeared in 1811 under the pseudonym "A Lady". A work of romantic fiction, better known as a comedy of manners, Sense and Sensibility is set in southwest England, London and Kent between 1792 and 1797, and portrays the life and loves of the Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne. The novel follows the young ladies to their new home, a meagre cottage on a distant relative's property, where they experience love, romance and heartbreak. The philosophical resolution of the novel is ambiguous: the reader must decide whether sense and sensibility have truly merged.Jane Austen wrote the first draft of the novel in the form of a novel-in-letters (epistolary form) sometime around 1795 when she was about 19 years old, and gave it the title, Elinor and Marianne. She later changed the form to a narrative and the title to Sense and Sensibility. By changing the title, Austen added "philosophical depth" to what began as a sketch of two characters. The title of the book, and that of her next published novel, Pride and Prejudice (1813), may be suggestive of political conflicts of the 1790s. The book has been adapted for film, stage and television a number of times.Jane Austen (1775-1817) was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature.

Jane Eyre (originally published as Jane Eyre: An Autobiography) was published on 16 October 1847 by Smith, Elder & Co. of London, England, under the pen name "Currer Bell." The first American edition was released the following year by Harper & Brothers of New York. Writing for the Penguin edition, Stevie Davies describes it as an "influential feminist text" because of its in-depth exploration of the main female character's feelings.Primarily of the bildungsroman genre, Jane Eyre follows the emotions and experiences of its eponymous character, including her growth to adulthood, and her love for Mr. Rochester, the byronic master of fictitious Thornfield Hall. In its internalization of the action - the focus is on the gradual unfolding of Jane's moral and spiritual sensibility and all the events are colored by a heightened intensity that was previously the domain of poetry- the novel revolutionized the art of fiction. Charlotte Brontë has been called the 'first historian of the private consciousness' and the literary ancestor of writers like Joyce and Proust. The novel contains elements of social criticism, with a strong sense of morality at its core, but is nonetheless a novel many consider ahead of its time given the individualistic character of Jane and the novel's exploration of classism, sexuality, religion, and proto-feminism.According to a review of Jane Eyre in The Quarterly Review, it was found to be "pre-eminently an anti-Christian composition". Although Brontë clearly intended for the book to be a protest against Victorian lifestyle, which caused a great unrest with the Quarterly Review, they found Jane Eyre to be more radical than its original intent: "We do not hesitate to say that the tone of mind and thought which has overthrown authority and violated every code human and divine abroad, and fostered Chartism and rebellion at home, is the same which has also written Jane Eyre". Although Jane Eyre is now commonly accepted into the canon of
secondary school English literature, its immediate reception was in stark contrast to its modern-day reception. In 2003 the novel was ranked number 10 on the BBC's survey The Big Read.Charlotte Brontë (21 April 1816 – 31 March 1855) was an English novelist and poet, the eldest of the three Brontë sisters who survived into adulthood, whose novels are English literature standards. She wrote Jane Eyre under the pen name Currer Bell. [Elib]
"Läsare, om du inte ännu upptäckt den unika röst som finns hos Charlotte Brontës Jane Eyre, så har du ett alldeles särskilt nöje framför dig."  Joyce Carol OatesJane Eyre,  är Charlotte Brontës mest älskade och lästa roman. Skildringen av den unga flickan Janes svåra uppväxt, hennes tid på välgörenhetsskola, hennes ankomst till Thornfield Hall och mötet med den gåtfulle mr Rochester och hans dunkla hemlighet är sedan länge en klassiker. Det har skrivits spaltmeter om romanen, och utifrån vitt skilda motiv: feminism, religion, symbolism, kärlek, passion, natur, barn, sociala frågor och så vidare. Generation efter generation har levt med, gråtit med, skrattat med den unga flickan Jane Eyre och hennes långa och krokiga väg fram till ett självständigt liv.Redan när Jane Eyre utkom 1847 blev den en storartad framgång. Genom sin passionerade och uppriktiga skildring av en älskande kvinnas strävan efter självständighet och likaberättigande utgör romanen en milstolpe i kvinnoskildringarnas historia och har under åren kommit ut i flera utgåvor, samt filmatiserats. Jane Eyre är en både skarpsinnig och romantisk berättelse om kärlek men den är också ett försvar för kvinnans rätt till lika värde.Jane Eyre kom i nyöversättning 1999 av Gun-Britt Sundström, en lysande översättning som ligger till grund för denna utgåva.Översättare:Gun-Britt Sundström [Elib]

Helen fostras till att bli en god maka men hennes liv blir en mardröm i äktenskapet med den alkoholiserade och våldsamme Arthur Huntingdon. Utkom första gången 1848
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, the second and final novel by Anne Brontë (1848), is concerned with the story of a woman who leaves her abusive, dissolute husband, and who must then support herself and her young son. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is a slightly darker work than her first novel Agnes Grey, focusing on dashed dreams and frustrated hopes. A mysterious young widow arrives at Wildfell Hall, an Elizabethan mansion which has been empty for many years, with her young son. She lives there under an assumed name, Helen Graham, and very soon finds herself the victim of local slander. Refusing to believe anything scandalous about her, Gilbert Markham discovers her dark secrets. This passionate novel of betrayal is set within a moral framework tempered by Anne's optimistic belief in universal salvation. Originally published in June of 1848, it challenged the prevailing morals of the time; a critic went so far as to pronounce it "utterly unfit to be put into the hands of girls." The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is mainly considered to be one of the first sustained feminist novels. May Sinclair, in 1913, said that the slamming of Helen's bedroom door against her husband reverberated throughout Victorian England. In escaping from her husband, she violates not only social conventions, but also English law. Anne Brontë (1820-1849) was a British novelist and poet, the youngest member of the Brontë literary family. She also wrote a volume of poetry with her sisters under the pseudonym Acton Bell. Anne was the youngest of the Bronte siblings, born in 1820. Like her sisters she wrote under a pename: Acton Bell. Agnes Grey was published in 1847 and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall in 1848. She died shortly after this in 1849, aged just 29 years old. Anne preferred a more realistic style to the romanticism of her sisters, basing her first novel on her own experiences as a Governess. Anne Brontë shows an equal talent to her sisters; her novels are gripping and realistic, but
inevitably overshadowed by the more dramatic romanticism of Charlotte's Jane Eyre and Emily's Wuthering Heights. [Elib]

Importantly, this recording is based on the original 1848 Newby edition, not on the later, badly-mutilated version that mystifyingly continues to be the basis for modern editions advertised as “unabridged.” The novel had already been suppressed after Anne’s death by her sister Charlotte but received an even more serious injustice in 1854 when publisher Thomas Hodgson excised over sixteen thousand words, dozens of “unladylike” profanities, and numerous descriptions of dissolute male behavior, turning the Hodgson edition into a pale shadow of Anne Brontë’s original, visceral work as here presented.

Wuthering Heights was first published in London in 1847, appearing as the first two volumes of a three-volume set that included Anne Brontë's Agnes Grey. The authors were printed as being Ellis and Acton Bell; Emily's real name didn't appear until 1850, when it was printed on the title page of an edited commercial edition. The novel's innovative structure somewhat puzzled critics.Wuthering Heights's violence and passion led the Victorian public and many early reviewers to think that it had been written by a man. According to Juliet Gardiner, "the vivid sexual passion and power of its language and imagery impressed, bewildered and appalled reviewers." Even though it received mixed reviews when it first came out, and was often condemned for its portrayal of amoral passion, the book subsequently became an English literary classic.Wuthering Heights is the name of the farmhouse on the Yorkshire moors where the story unfolds. The book's core theme is the destructive effect that jealousy and vengefulness have, both on the jealous or vengeful individuals and on their communities.Although a letter from her publisher indicates that Emily had begun to write a second novel, the manuscript has never been found. Perhaps Emily, or a member of her family, eventually destroyed the manuscript, if it existed, when she was prevented by illness from completing it. In any case, no manuscript of a second novel by Emily has survived.In the second half of the 19th century, Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre was considered the best of the Brontë sisters' works, but later critics argued that Wuthering Heights was superior. Wuthering Heights has inspired adaptations, including film, radio and television dramatisations, a musical by Bernard J. Taylor, a ballet, operas (by Bernard Herrmann, Carlisle Floyd, and Frédéric Chaslin), a role-playing game, and a 1978 song by Kate Bush.Emily Jane Brontë (1818-1848) was an English novelist and poet, best remembered for her only novel, Wuthering
Heights, now considered a classic of English literature. She was the younger sister of Charlotte Brontë and the fifth of six children, though the two oldest girls, Maria and Elizabeth, died in childhood.  When Emily was three years old, the older sisters Maria, Elizabeth and Charlotte were sent to the Clergy Daughters' School at Cowan Bridge, where they encountered abuse and privations later described by Charlotte in Jane Eyre. The sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne, are well known as poets and novelists. They originally published their poems and novels under masculine pseudonyms, following the custom of the times practised by female writers. Their stories immediately attracted attention, although not always the best, for their passion and originality. Charlotte's Jane Eyre was the first to know success, while Emily's Wuthering Heights, Anne's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and other works were later to be accepted as masterpieces of literature.
